amazing terraces

Walk around and climb up the rice terraces to see a better view and then, soothe yourself with the hot spring in the area. It will make the hike more memorable.

One of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Ifugao. Boasts of a long valley of rice terraces with a distinct outline of rice paddies. It is the jump off of Mt Napulauan. At the end of the terraces is the refreshing Bogyah Hot Spring. In the middle of the ricefield is a clean gushing river. Getting there, you may opt... More

The place itself is beautiful, serene, and delightful to the senses. I recommend trekking to the hot springs and cooling off in the river. Just be wary of the tourist information ladies at the muncipal tourist registration spot. They make you pay PhP 100.00/group as registration fee, which is fine. But they also tell you that you need to book... More

This is a special places. It is not as visited so there is a calmness and quiet that is very special. Spend time just taking in the unique beauty of the terraces.

Well worth the visit to compliment Batads high stadium style terraces. Very tranquil and serene terraces scattered with small village dwellings and even a pretty church in the middle. The hot spring is also worth a dip.

The view of the Hapao Rice Terraces is different from Banaue rice terraces. Worth the trip because we were able to stay at the middle of the rice terraces and walk the rice paddles. What an experience! Plus, the whole Hungduan including Hapao rice terraces are UNESCO world heritage site.

A bit far from Banaue around 30 minutes by tricycle before you reach the starting point of the trek. It was manageable though and with a great scenery to look at you wont feel any sweat! Lovely worth a visit! The terraces here are wider compared to those in Banaue and Batad. Hire a guide! And by the way there's... More
